After I finished my Master’s degree in Art History, English and Philosophy at the University of Cologne in 1996 I decided that I wanted to work in journalism. In the years that followed I worked as an intern for several reputable German media outlets such as WDR and Deutsche Welle. I received my PR journalism training at the Fortbildungsakademie der Wirtschaft (FAW). After my travels to New Zealand I worked in a PR agency in Hamburg as Assistant to the Managing Director, Copywriter and Consultant. In 2001 I left the agency to work as a freelance journalist.
I love to research, meet and interview people and write about different topics. In the past I have covered subject areas such as education, work and career, business, jewellery, health, animal welfare & environment and cats. I see myself as a generalist who can research and write about unfamiliar topics
My clients (past and present) include: The Times, The Guardian, SecEd, Payroll World, Press Gazette, Natur und Kosmos, Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger, Kieler Nachrichten, Ein Herz für Tiere, Geliebte Katze, Making Jewellery, InterPark, Medical Device Development and Good Health.

Why you should commission me?
I deliver on time, go the extra mile in my research and write to the agreed brief. Where necessary and possible I also source images. As a German native speaker I can also add my language skills to the mix and a different perspective on subject areas.
But don’t take my word for it – this is what my clients say about me.
